A surprise tonightThe woman beside me at the local club
On the phone was speaking German
and I could understand quite clearly
60 years ago in high school I had studied German
but yet here and now, so long unused
I knew what she was saying.
Back then the German Embassy sent me a prize
A book I never read
Die Gelbe Dogge Senta
Maybe now I should read it!
Die gelbe Dogge Senta;: Geschichte einer Freundschaft (German Edition) Hardcover – January 1, 1952
